BOHO Inspired Easter Egg

Okay, we couldn’t help ourselves! If you follow us, or know me personally you know I have a love of all things boho, but especially mud cloth. So, we made up these boho inspired Easter eggs for a different take on egg decorating!

BOHO Inspired Easter Egg

There really isn’t a huge DIY for this post other than:

  1. Boil your egg.
  2. Take a Sharpie, and create a boho inspired pattern. We used some of my pillows as inspiration!

The Goods

Eggs

Small terracotta pots

White paint

Decorative Sand

Extra fine Sharpie

Tissue Paper

Cardstock (I used white and copper)

Hot Glue

(All products available at Michaels)

  1. Begin by boiling your eggs as per usual.
  2. While eggs are boiling, paint your pot white (you can do any color but I wanted mine more modern)
  3. After your eggs are done, simply take your Sharpie and draw lines, x’s, dots, and dashes are various eggs to create a cactus vibe.
  4. To make the flower, take a small portion of your tissue paper, fold in half, and cut strips as in making fringe. Then fold the base as to create a lip and hot glue it to your egg.
  5. To make the arms, we cut various shapes of out card stock that resembled a cactus, folded a pieces at the bottom to create a lip so it would be easy to hot glue the arm to the egg.
  6. Fill your pot with decorative sand.
  7. Place egg on top of sand, and you have the cutest cactus egg garden ever!
